Psychometric Tests

These days, if you manage to land a job just by pinging off an application and showing up for an interview, you’ll have got off lightly. Because many employers are increasingly using sophisticated ‘psychometric’ tests of aptitude and personality to help them thin out the field and find the candidate they’re looking for.

The purpose of these tests is to provide recruiters with more accurate insights into how likely you are to succeed in the job than they might gather from applications and interviews alone. Find out here what to expect from them and how to give yourself the best chance of success.
